Odisha Chief Minister urges name of Jharsuguda Airport after freedom fighter Veer Surendra Sai

Bhubaneswar:13/9/18; Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has written to Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu urging the latter to name Jharsuguda Airport after freedom fighter Veer Surendra Sai.

Stating that naming the airport after Surendra Sai would be a befitting tribute to the legendary son of the soil, Patnaik mentioned in the letter that he is glad that the development of Jharsuguda Airport has been completed and it will be formally inaugurated and dedicated to the nation on September 22.

The CM also requested the Union Minister to consider introduction of commercial flights to Jharsuguda as it is located strategically in an industrial and mining belt of Odisha.
